Conflict fighters prepare to go to battle this Saturday, December 11 in Lenoir, North Carolina for Elite Championship Cage Fighting 14. Elite CCF presents an evening of exciting fights among the best amateur mixed martial artists in the Southeast.
The Elite CCF Light Heavyweight Title belt as well as the 125lb and 145 lb belts are on the line this weekend. The coveted Elite Light Heavyweight belt is sponsored by Conflict and is scheduled to be presented by Conflict's founder/president Christian McDaniel and Vice President Mari Melehes. Also on the card are two bouts that will determine the belt contenders for the Welterweight Division as well as the Number One Contender bout in the 185 division.
Conflict fighter Shon "The Wolverine" Winchester will take on Matt Easter at the 155 weight class. Winchester fights out of Alexander Karate in Greenville, South Carolina and holds a third degree black belt in karate. He also trains in grappling/Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Given his well rounded background in both stand-up and ground fighting, this bout is not to be missed.
